Most Helpful

Electric Performances... Ruby Dee and a young Jena Malone. This was my second time listening, but it won't be my last. Highly, highly recommended for all mature audiences. Darker themes of violence, racial injustice, and tragedy striking both young and old join with more general themes of love, loss and loneliness to make this an unsuitable listen for kids.
